All copying, regardless of method, is subject to copyright law. The person making or requesting the copy(ies) is responsible for ascertaining whether any copyright or other restrictions exist and for obtaining all necessary permissions.Computer printouts
Electronic resources, including public Internet access, are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Computer workstations are reserved in two hour segments. A patron can sign up for two additional hours if no one else is waiting.
Prior to using electronic resources, patrons must obtain a State Library library card and read the State Library's Requirements for Use of Electronic Information Systems.
Readers and reader-printers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Patrons sign up for use of microform equipment for one hour or what remains of an hour. If no one else is waiting, patrons may sign up for an additional hour once the initial time is completed. If all of the allotted time is not used, the remaining time may be used by another patron.
Because photocopying may damage old or fragile books, some books are marked "Brittle - Do Not Photocopy." We ask that patrons not make copies from these books.
One and five-dollar bill changers are available.
State Library staff can certify copies as "a true copy of a record". See Certification of Documents for more information.
CSL provides a number of reprographics services. Complete reproductions of books, archival, or other material will only be made within copyright restrictions and as CSL staffing and resources permit. See Photocopy Service section of Reproduction and Publication of Connecticut State Library Collections for charges and procedures.
